Preventive Dental Care
Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home is the best way for patients of any age to minimize their dental needs. Preventive dental care plays a large part of every dental exam and cleaning. X-rays are taken to help spot imperfections as well as create a history of tooth development. A family dentist takes great care to understand the progression of each patient’s oral health throughout the years. Fluoride treatments and sealants are used on patients as part of the preventive practice.
With routine visits, early detection becomes a regular practice. Children appreciate their cavities identified on the surface. In fact, all patients appreciate it when injections are not a part of the procedure. Adult patients with more wear and tear in their mouths would much rather catch a cracked tooth at the office and have it treated preventing a break later on. Early detection limits the intrusiveness of dental procedures that are more affordable solutions.
Dental check-ups inspect the integrity of older restorations and gum tissue. Gum disease is irreversible once it moves beyond Gingivitis, so it is important to clean and treat the soft tissue as soon as signs of gum disease are present. If it moves to periodontitis or into the advanced periodontitis stages, Dr. Wilcox will work with the patient to develop the best method of treatment to stop the progression and maintain good hygiene to prevent the spreading of the disease.
